Platform Cluster Manager 4.1.x & Platform HPC 4.1.x

 1. Download IBM JRE 6.0 x86_64 from the following location: http://www.ibm.com
    /support/fixcentral. (For POWER platform, download ppc64 version JRE tar
    package. The followings steps are using x86_64 as an example.)
 2. Copy the tar package into the management node.  If high availability is
    enabled, copy the JRE tar package to standby management node, as well.
 3. If high availability is enabled, shutdown standby management node to avoid
    triggering high availability.
 4. On the management node, stop GUI and PERF services

HA disabled:
# pmcadmin stop
# perfadmin stop all

HA enabled:
# egosh user logon -u Admin -x Admin
# egosh service stop all

 5. On management node, extract new JRE files and replace some old folders with
    new ones.

# chmod +x ibm-java-x86_64-jre-6.0-16.75.bin

# ./ibm-java-x86_64-jre-6.0-16.75.bin
# mv /opt/pcm/web-portal/jre/linux-x86_64/bin /opt/pcm/web-portal/jre/
linux-x86_64/bin-old
# mv /opt/pcm/web-portal/jre/linux-x86_64/lib /opt/pcm/web-portal/jre/
linux-x86_64/lib-old
# mv /opt/pcm/web-portal/jre/linux-x86_64/plugin /opt/pcm/web-portal/jre/
linux-x86_64/plugin-old
# cp -r ibm-java-x86_64-60/jre/bin /opt/pcm/web-portal/jre/linux-x86_64/
# cp -r ibm-java-x86_64-60/jre/lib /opt/pcm/web-portal/jre/linux-x86_64/
# cp -r ibm-java-x86_64-60/jre/plugin /opt/pcm/web-portal/jre/linux-x86_64/

 6.  On management node, start GUI and PERF services

HA disabled:
# pmcadmin start
# perfadmin start all

HA enabled:
# egosh user logon -u Admin -x Admin
# egosh service start all

 

Platform Cluster Manager 4.2.x & Platform HPC 4.2.x & Spectrum Cluster
Foundation 4.2.2

    /support/fixcentral. (For POWER platform, download ppc64 version JRE tar
    package. The followings steps are using x86_64 as an example.)
 2. Copy the tar package into the management node.  If high availability is
    enabled, copy the JRE tar package to standby management node, as well.
 3. If high availability is enabled, shutdown standby management node to avoid
    triggering high availability.
 4. On the management node, stop GUI and PERF services

# pcmadmin service stop --group ALL

 5. On management node, extract new JRE files and replace some old folders with
    new ones.

# chmod +x ibm-java-x86_64-jre-7.0-10.35.bin

linux-x86_64/plugin-old
# cp -r ibm-java-x86_64-70/jre/bin /opt/pcm/web-portal/jre/linux-x86_64/
# cp -r ibm-java-x86_64-70/jre/lib /opt/pcm/web-portal/jre/linux-x86_64/
# cp -r ibm-java-x86_64-70/jre/plugin /opt/pcm/web-portal/jre/linux-x86_64/

 6.  On management node, start GUI and PERF services

# pcmadmin service start --group ALL

 7. If high availability is enabled, start up standby management node, and
    replace bin, lib, plugin folders under /opt/pcm/web-portal/jre/
    linux-x86_64, on standby management node.
